European Union kicks off formal Brexit process

Parmenio Sano | 20 Giugno, 2017, 21:02

The two sides agreed on the structure of the negotiations, dates and the priorities for the talks which will be conducted by Mr Barnier and the UK Brexit secretary David Davis.

This letter also presses for an early deal giving guarantees on the rights of European Union citizens working in the UK.

"A fair deal is possible, and far better than no deal ..."

A lot of European Union citizens work in the health service in the United Kingdom and the Cavendish Coalition of Health Authorities is warning that there could be a rush to leave if the terms agreed in the Brexit talks are not favourable for them, compounding a situation where many hospitals have multiple vacancies, especially in areas such as nursing.

But many in Brussels fear that London has no real strategy, with May under pressure at home and still trying to close a deal with a conservative Northern Ireland party to stay in power, and facing criticism for her handling of the aftermath of a devastating tower block fire. Davis said she will tell them about plans to guarantee rights for some 3 million European Union citizens in Britain under a proposal to be made next week.

They said discussions would be split into three stages: citizen rights, the single financial settlement and other separation issues.

The EU has said that before it will start discussing a future trade deal with the United Kingdom, it wants to resolve the biggest uncertainties arising from Brexit, including the future rights of around 3 million EU citizens in the United Kingdom and the arrangements for avoiding a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. And our promise to you is that we will always strive to provide indispensable journalism to our community.

The UK kicked off talks in Brussels with both sides agreeing a schedule for dialogue as they attempt to pave the way to Brexit. "Then in the second step we will scope our future partnership".


He explained that Theresa May, the Prime Minister, would brief fellow European Union leaders at a summit on Thursday on the UK's approach to the rights of expatriate citizens, which will be set out in detail in a paper on Monday.

The difficulty, and potential acrimony, of the Brexit process could however be felt.

N. Ireland is expected to be dealt with early on, between Oliver Robbins, UK prime minister's Sherpa, her chief diplomatic advisor and number two in the negotiations after Davis from the UK side and European Commission's Deputy Chief Negotiator Sabine Weyand on the EU-27 side.

Goodwin said there are those who want to retain the single market.

It means the divorce terms will be set first, before discussions on future trade relations. "That's what I can say, from my part", he replied. "The U.K. has made a decision to leave the EU. Every one must assume the consequences, they are massive", he said.

Anticipating the challenges in the months ahead, both referenced fellow countrymen who defended their visions.

In a sign of his approach, Mr Davis quoted Sir Winston Churchill's dictum that "the pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity".

And at a final news conference they traded quotes from their respective nations' history: Barnier cited European Union founding father Jean Monnet to say: "I am neither optimistic nor pessimistic".
